Having just ran out of my Clinique quickliner today I've used a cheap Boots Collection liquid eyeliner that was at the bottom of my make up bag, I'm surprised by the fact that tonight it hasn't budged at all and looks just the same as when I applied it this morning.
I prefer pencil eyeliner for a smokey effect but it always ends up smudging. I am over 50 and think pencil looks softer but I prefer the staying power of the liquid.
I think gel liner is great, you can smudge it a bit too. Maybelline do one that comes with its own brush that's cheap to try out My mum is 65 and always having her makeup done at mac or bobbi brown and they often do liner really well on her
Collection 2000 eyeliner pen is the best I've ever used. Won't budge for anything! I worked for clinique and chanel for years and years and still think the collection one is better...! Estee Lauder artists eye pencil is excellent for smudgy type looks.
